Defendant's Verdict.
Kevin Schnurbusch obtained a defendants' verdict before a jury in the City of St. Louis for the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission. The case was tried over 3 days in Division 11 before Judge Donald McCullin. The plaintiff was a passenger in a car driven by her husband that lost control on Interstate 70 in the City of St. Louis between West Florrisant and Shreve Avenues. The car went through a fence and struck a tree on a maintenance yard owned by MoDOT. Plaintiff alleged that the tree was too near the traveled portion of the roadway. Defendant contended that the tree was not on the highway right of way and conformed with current highway design standards. Plaintiff suffered a crush injury to her ankle requiring three surgeries and medical specials of $60,000.00.
